Year in and year out, it's almost guaranteed Flying Pie Pizzaria wins this category. Flying Pie has been a part of Boise since 1978, and if you haven't tried it, well, what are you waiting for?

Proudly displayed for each customer to see inside the restaurant is Flying Pie's promise: "We care a lot about every pizza we make and personally guarantee your satisfaction." It's a guarantee that covers a lot of real estate - basically any idea you have for a pizza is possible here, and if you've tried every combination and are fresh out of ideas, Flying Pie has its own 18 specialty pizzas to choose from. To take it one step further, they even suggest a beer and wine to accompany your pizza.

Speaking of beer and wine, you can decide between a variety of red and white wines and lots of different beers at Flying Pie, and they can even deliver your choice to you at home. (One exception: The newest location in Meridian is dine-in only.) Still not unique enough for you? Try the house beer, the Triple Pi Ale.

Flying Pie owns the Treasure Valley's coolest promotion, "It's Your Day," in which you get to make your own 10-inch pizza with whatever you want on it for free. That's right, free. They pick a name for the day, and if it's your name, head on in and start tossing the dough in the air. No wonder they win every year.
